A Winter Themed Thank You

The Sisters In Stamping chose a Winter Thank You theme this week.  It's great timing as I need to thank some people!  This was a quick and easy card and I love that!

As soon as I saw the theme, I knew what I wanted to do.  I love this set (Flurry of Wishes).  There is a matching punch for it too (Snow Flurry Punch), but I didn't use it this time.

I stamped the snowflakes in Marina Mist on Shimmery White cardstock (yes, I LOVE this cardstock!)  I then stamped the "thank you" sentiment (from the Tin of Cards stamp set) using Memento Tuxedo Black.   I then layered the stamped piece on to a piece of Marina Mist cardstock.  The last thing I did was to tie a double bow from the Silver 1/8" ribbon and adhered it with a tiny amount of glue.

That's it - easy as that!

Sled on over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to check out what the other ladies created here!

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Rubber Ducky, You're The One!

Tomorrow, January 13, is National Rubber Ducky Day!  Who knew there even was such a thing? 

Well, I just had to join the fun!

I created this card to celebrate.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!

I used a framelit die package to create this quick and easy card.  I decided to use Pool Party cardstock and matching Designer Paper.  I then stamped 4 rubber duckies and die cut them out from Crushed Curry cardstock.  I used dimensionals to pop up one ducky on another to give a little depth to them.  I adhered a little black rhinestone for the eyes.   I found a little heart embellishment I've had for years and decided to use it in the middle square.  I finished  the card off with a little matching ribbon.  That's it - easy and fun!

Happy Birthday To All The Snow Babies!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone is enjoying a safe and healthy new year so far.

This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is "Birthday".

I know a lot people with early January birthdays.  So, for all of you, this card is for you!  I definitely want to give a shout out to my Sisters In Stamping friend Rachel as it is her actual birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Rachel!!!!

I love this little stamp and the matching punch (Cookie Cutter Christmas).  Isn't it cute?  I colored in the winter girl image with my markers (Crumb Cake and Dapper Denim).  I also used some Blushing Bride on her cheeks.  After I colored in my little snow girl, I used some pearlescent paint around the hood, cuffs, and edge of shirt.

I don't think you can tell, but I used Shimmery White paper for the igloo and background cardstock.  To make the igloo, I first used my Simply Scored Tool to mimic the ice "bricks".  Then, I used my Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the igloo.  Next, I adhered a thin layer of glue on the scored lines and outline of the igloo and poured Dazzling Diamonds all over.  I knocked off the unstuck DD and let it set/dry.   

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and I punched it out using the Duet Banner punch.  I punched out the sentiment using the top banner and then punched out the bottom piece using Dapper Denim cardstock.  I layered the Shimmery White cardstock on Dapper Denim and then layered them on Crumb Cake. 

I finished the card off by wrapping a piece of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon, applying a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the punched sentiment and then used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up each item.  It was a lot of work, but totally worth it because it makes me happy - I love winter!

Please check out what the Sisters In Stamping ladies created for this week's theme here.

Thank you for looking and have a great day!

Today, the Sisters in Stamping are featuring pearls.  I wanted to keep my creation plain to feature them.  This is what I created.  I think it is a very elegant card that could be used for many occasions.

I cut out a piece of Shimmery White first and scored it.  Then, I adhered it to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Next, I adhered to a piece of Silver Foil cardstock, then to another piece of Night of Navy.  Finally, I adhered to Whisper White cardstock card base.  After layering, I placed each pearl in the cross section of the score marks.  I finished up the card with a bow tied from Organza White Ribbon.

Thanks for looking.  Check out the other pearl creations at the Sisters In Stamping blog here.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pinterest Inspired

TGIF!  Happy Friday!

The Sisters In Stamping are getting creative by being Pinterest inspired!  We were to find something on Pinterest and then create a likeness using Stampin' Up! products.

I chose this Pinterest image found here:
I didn't realize that this is actually a vintage Christmas card.  I just really liked the image and knew I wanted to use my new bell punch :)

So, this is my card, inspired by the image above:

I used several punches on this card:  Bell Punch, Snow Flurry Punch, and the little bow is from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I also used the Real Red 3/8" Stitched Ribbon.  I love this ribbon - it's gorgeous!  I used a lot of different papers too.  The base card is Real Red cardstock.  I then used a piece of Shimmery White to place against the card base.  I punched one bell and the snowflakes from the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper.  I punched the bell from the Real Red Glimmer paper.  The silver bells were punched out of the Silver Foil paper.  I added some Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes to give them a little pop.

This was a fun challenge and it got me looking at different things on Pinterest in a whole new light!  So, while pinning, see what inspires you!

Thanks for looking and check out what the other Sisters created from their inspired pins!

It's Responsible Dog Ownership Day

Who knew there was a national day for that?  Well, it gave me a good excuse to use one of my favorite dog sets!  To all of you responsible dog owners out there, I applaud you!  Give your furries a head rub for me :)

The image and sentiment are from the Ruff Day stamp set.  Love this set!!!!  I used some bone designer paper and layered it on Early Espresso cardstock.  I framed the sentiment in a bone by punching out two hearts and adhered to a piece of Espresso cardstock.  Then, I finished it off with a bow :)

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Show Teachers Some Appreciation!

TGIF!!!  Happy Friday and I hope all the kids and teachers are off to a great school year. 

This week, the Sisters In Stamping are creating note cards for teachers.

These are the cards I created using the new In Color Designer Papers, Inks, and Enamel Dots.  I also used the Butterfly and Tags dies.  The sentiments came from the Tin of Cards set.

I packed them in a clear acrylic note card box and used some ribbon to tie it all together.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
